died due to heart attack, next is Mr Julio Flojo, still alive, more than 70 years old and does not
know if he has an underlying disease because, Mr Gregorio, his brother, has no contact to them.
Next to Mr Julio is Mrs Flipinas Bucalin, died at the age of 65 due to cancer of the colon. The
youngest child which is our client, Mr Gregorio, still alive and had been diagnosed with
Hypertension by Mr Agbayani when he was still at the age of 60. Dr Agbayani prescribed
metropolol, 10 mg 2x a day and at the same time he is taking amlodipine 10 mg per day. But
after that , when he had his follow-up check up, the Dr. found out that his blood pressure is
falling up to normal, he just then prescribed to stop taking metropolol. So instead of taking 2
medicines per day it had been reduced to one tablet which is amlodipine with the same dosage.
Mr Gregorio said that he was an alcohol drinker from 1963 up to 1999 but he claimed
that he doesnt drink alcohol every day. He just stated, sa nak lang uminon nu kayat ko
maturog. They just used or drink alcohol if they want to sleep because he also stated that he
was once a conductor of a bus before and they had experienced sleepless nights because his
duty back then was from Batac to Manila.
Mr Gregorio also stated childhood illness that they had experience before like
chickenpox, tonsillitis, fever, cough and colds and also bitten by a dog. They managed
chickenpox by wearing black clothings and keeping or isolating theirselves in a high
temperature room. They also managed tonsillitis by taking a tablet but when asked he said that
he doesnt remember anymore likewise with fever, cough and colds. They claimed that they
received all immunizations but failed to show the record as evidence.
On the other hand, based on maternal side, Mr Felipe Pungtilan, died at the age of 82.
When asked about the cause of the death, she just said that he didnt carry the situation that he
was experiencing that time. Meanwhile Mrs. Hortenzia Pungtilan also died at the age of 42.
They said that she died due to natig-anan. They were blessed with 6 children namely:
Constantino Pungtilan, 66 years old, alive and has a hypertension. We wanted to ask further
about him but then Mrs Editha doesnt know more about him anymore. Next is editha, se has
been diagnosed with gallstone. Gilda Villanueva, 55 years old, Orazalinda Bayangos, 52 years
old and Juliet who is 40 years old. According to Mrs Edita, she doesnt have a contact with
them anymore. She mentioned 3 diseases that they experienced before such as fever, cough
and colds. When asked about the type of management she said that their mother uses herbal
medication before. When asked again on what are the herbal medications being taken or used,
she said she doesnt know.

FLOJO FAMILY

LEGEND:
Strong Attachmentment
Weak attachment

Table 3.0 Ecomap


Table 3.0 presents the relationship of the family to the larger community. The
family always go to church. The students in the family always go to school and have
good relationship with their friends. With regards to the familys health, they consult
to Hospital and RHU. Sometimes they go to fast foods like Jollibee, pik a bun etc.
when they have an extra money. They dont go chatting with their neighbour
because they much prefer to stay at home and watch television. The family buys
their food and other needs in the market and in the store near their house.
Family characteristics

Page

As reflected on table 1.0, the type of family they have is extended because it composes of 3
families in one house for a total of 7 members. Wherein, the head of the family is Mr. Gregorio
Flojo, 66 years old, High School Undergraduate. He is married to Mrs. Editha Flojo, 62 years of
age, elementary graduate. She is a plain housewife and she is also the one who is cleaning the
house washing the dishes and the one who is assigned to care of her grandson Ivo and to her
granddaughter Jen who are both residing in their house. They are blessed with 7 children. The
eldest is Mrs Jocelyn Dadong, 37 years old, Roman Catholic, High School Graduate and she is
currently working as a helper in a carinderia somewhere in Currimao, Ilocos Norte. Mrs Jocelyn
was being tied to Mr Roderick Dadong and has 2 sons namely: John Lester Dadong, 7 years old
and Mark Jimwell Dadong, 5 years old. They are currently residing in Curimao, Ilocos Norte.
Their second child is Ms Greta Flojo, 35 years old, a college graduate and working as a
secretary here in City of Batac. She has a common-law-spouse who is Mr. Renante Malunaw,
and they have 1 daughter named Jen Irish Malunaw. Jen is a Grade 2 pupil, and she is the
guarantee of Mrs Editha to the Project of our Governor which is the Pantawid Pampamilya
Pilipino Program (4Ps). Next to Ms Greta is Mr Eugene Flojo, 33 years old, High School
Undergraduate and working in Manila as a family driver. Mrs Janet Corpuz is their fourth child,
she is 32 years old, and a college graduate. On the other hand, he was married to Mr Denis
Corpuz, wherein they live together with their 3 sons namely: Clark Jade Corpuz, 8 years old,
next to him is Denver Corpuz, 5 years old and the youngest among the 3 is Jim Paul Corpuz, 1
year old. Fifth child is Mr Jefferson Flojo, 26 years old, a college student at TESDA and at the
same time a tricycle driver. He is not married but has a son named Iggyman Ivo Flojo, 1 year old
and when asked about the mother of the child they said that she died 9 days after giving birth to
Ivo. Next to Mr Jeff, is Ms Diana Flojo, 23 years old, and a college undergraduate. And lastly the
youngest is Mr. Marvin Flojo, 17 years old, a college student at MMSU-COE. Their religious
affiliation is Aglipayan except to those who have already tied themselves with someone who is
not an Aglipayan (Mrs Jocelyn Dadong and Mrs Janet Corpuz together with their husband and
their children). They use mobile phones as a means of their communication. They contact each
other every day as stated by Mrs Editha and for their children who are already far away from
them, if given the chance to take an ample time, they usually visit them.
Year 1975, Mr Gregorio and Mrs Editha tied their knot, and from that time on, up until
now they are still staying in their house at # 409 Brgy 9, Aglipay, City of Batac wherein 4 of their
children are given birth to that house.

They practice egalitarian because the husband and wife exercise equal amount of
authority. Furthermore, they live patrilocally because they live in the family house of the paternal
side. In the evening, they gather their selves together watching television as a form of their
bonding with one another. In terms of decision making, they assemble their selves and
somebody will start to discuss the topic or a problem and if majority of them are in favour to
ones decision then it would be the final. Also the same strategy is being used on how to handle
conflict between them. In terms of the things they need, Mrs Editha claimed that as long as they
have money to use then theyll purchase the thing they want to buy. For the reason that Ms
Diana doesnt have work, she then volunteers herself to help her mother in the household
chores and Mr Jefferson also do is part to uses their tricycle to earn money when he doesnt
have class.
Socioeconomic and cultural characteristics
Both parents did not finished their studies, they have the ability to write but they cant read
well. Among their seven children, their two daughters graduated in college with a degree, while
the three of them did not finished their studies and their two sons are still studying in college.
They know how to read and write except to their 1 yr. old and 7 months Grandson.
The languages spoken by the family are iloco and tagalog. They dont participate in church
organizations but they attend mass every Sunday where this is just the time they could meet
their friends and relatives. Mr. and Mrs. Flojo married at 1975. Mr. Gregorio worked as a driver
of Franco trans and Mrs. Editha worked as a maid from 1996- 2012. For the reason that their
income is not sufficient, only two of their daughters graduated in college and three of them had
discontinue their studies. Their son Eugene, a family driver in Manila helps his youngest brother,
Mr Marvin, in paying his tuition. While to his brother Jefferson, he is just paying 50% of his
tuition and the remaining 50 % of it is that he just used his time driving their tricycle just to
complete the amount of money he needs. In terms of the expenses of the family, they are just
depending on the income of their two sons. Their son Eugene is giving Php 4500.00 a month,
their son Jefferson gives Php 3000.00 a month who is a tricycle driver and studying at TESDA
and as a member of 4 Ps they are receiving Php 800.00 per month. According to the mother,
this is enough in sustaining their daily needs. They allotted Php 4500.00 for food, Php 400.00
for electricity, Php 500.00 for transportation, Php 200.00 for medicines, Php 200.00 for water,
Php 800.00 for groceries, education for Php 1500.00 and Php 200.00 for miscellaneous. In
summation, the family has a monthly expense of 8300. After their household chores, they

The religion of Flojo family is Aglipayan they dont go to church as whole family. Mrs.
Editha goes to church every Sunday. But her husband and children goes to church not frequent.
On their living room, they have also many kind of statue. Whenever there is a member of the
family who have birthday to celebrate, they just cook something to eat and eat with the complete
family. In terms of their dietary habits, they eat meat and fond of eating vegetables. For fruits,
she just claimed that they just eat whenever there is a budget to that. But one of their daughters

Diana suffered from anorrhea, she consulted to a hilot and and the hilot recommend to at least
drink herba buena. They also believe to an annung where in they feel weak and dizzy. When
their daughter in law was dead on her 40 days, they cook linagkit as their atang.
Family environment
The Flojo family lives at # 049 Brgy 9, Aglipay, City of Batac, a rural area. The total
measurement of their house is 26 ft by 28 ft. They live on congested area as there is too little
space from their house to their neighbours. From 1975, the time Mr and Mrs Flojo got married
they reside to their paternal family house. Their house is a two-storey, made up of cement and
wood and their window is made up of bamboo beside it, attached to the house is their kitchen
which was made up of wood. They have 1 bedroom at the first floor and 2 rooms at second
floor. They have 6 lighting bulbs, one is located in front of their house, one in the living area, and
another is in their bedroom at the first floor, one at the second floor, one at the kitchen and one
at the back of their house. Mrs Editha uses mosquito net whenever they sleep with Baby Ivo,
while the others does not. It is more safety for them because their house is away from the
highway.

On the activities of daily living of the family, they start to sleep at 9 pm and wake up at 5
am and eat their breakfast at 6 am, lunch at 11:30am to 12 noon and for their supper it usually
starts at 7:00-7:30 pm. On the household chores, the whole family is working with each other

their house as a form of exercise .After the class of Mr Marvin and Mr Jefferson, they work as a
tricycle driver just to have their allowance. The common diseases of the family members that
they experienced were fever, cough, colds, and headache. For fever and headache, they
managed it by taking OTC drugs like biogesic 500 mg; every 6 hours but if the fever has not yet
gone until 3 days that will be the time that they will now consult a doctor by going to the RHU for
consultation. For cough and colds, they managed it by taking robitusin 250 mg and neozep 500
mg and by drinking plenty of water. Mrs. Editha has been diagnosed with gallstone by Dr.
Marasigan, second week of November. Her Dr. prescribed her medicines ciprofloxacin 500 mg
twice a day and ciproflex 500 mg twice a day and Mr. Gregorio has been diagnosed with
hypertension by Dr. Agbayani in the year 1999. He is taking amlodipine 10 mg once a day. The
mother of Ivo died last June 6, 2013 9 days after she delivered his child. According to Mrs.
Edita, to maintain their good health and to prevent diseases they are usually eating vegetables,
avoiding sweet foods, drinking plenty of water, avoiding of drinking soft drinks, cleaning their
house inside and out, proper hygiene and taking vitamins but Jefferson and Marvin sometimes
drink alcohol. Also, Mr Gregorio still tolerates to eat fatty foods with regards to his present
problem. As their home remedies they have first aid kit and some stocked drugs.
